Pop up ads.

I hate 'em!! Especially when it's a big green ugly thing advertising some cheap crap PeeCee!

Can't get rid of it?? When I'm browsing round the forums the last thing I want is to have to close off a zillion ad windows.

And yeah I appreciate that Monish has to make money somehow.

I love OmniWeb. I haven't seen a pop-up ad since I started using it. It's got filtering settings for all sorts of great stuff that annoys me!

The ad broker is being contacted about this, because this is clearly unacceptable.

This is something handled by the ad supplier, not us, and although we filed for removal of popup ads a little while ago, it takes them several weeks to process that ... so they're going away, but unfortunately we'll have to wait a bit longer.

So it goes.
